for us to strengthen our budget reserves and i believe we can cut taxes for everyone. but john, you decide we pay for things in indiana. when you were speaker for five or six years, indiana with $700 million in debt. we had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things. i would just like to know from my colleagues how we are going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> congressman, if you had spent the last 12 years in indiana, you would know better but it has to be balanced in indiana, according to our constitution. i have balanced and produced bipartisan balanced budget. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. five times, congressman, you voted in the results increase our deficit by $200 billion. >> bind key house and senate and governor races on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.com. >> great people and stories about american history. the first pilgrims in america came 50 years before the mayflower fail. they were french. they made one. they had the good sense to land in florid

advocated their responsibility to the director john saint croy in matters that go to the very heart of the open and honest operation. it is a real shame that a citizen of this city has to actually fight with boards and commissions who have taken an oath to support and defend the constitution of the united states and that of the state of california, who in some cases even have a chance to speak. and this is protected political free speech. and to represent it in some other way than a person who is speaking in the original, official records is nothing but censorship. and you want to censor it, which is why it has gone on this long. included in one of the determinations from the task force was a directive to the city attorney who stopped telling city bodies that not following the law as written, is wrong. and quit advising them to do it. this also referred to the district attorney office as well as this. >> good evening, commissioners, my name is dr. derek kerr. and i have comment that relates to the executive director's report and your annual report to the board. as you know, protecti

locations? what about voters who lost everything, including their photo i.d.? joe johns from washington joining me now. if anyone knows these questions, you do. do you think the election will be postponed ? what will happen in states like new jersey where many people are dealing with other things rather than worrying about getting to the polls? >> it's hard to say that an election like this will be postpone postponed. there are so many states in the united states that simply were not affected. and if you were to postpone for one state or two states, you would have what would be called an equal protection challenge and you could go to court and fight it. so, what's much more likely to happen, carol, is that the places that have problems -- we're talking about counties and specific precincts that have determined they have a problem. they'll do something to fix it, whether they'll move the polling place or there are some states that even have laws or rules where you can, you know, incrementally move the date or time, something along those lines. there are a lot of different options they ca
for one another, that's why we always bounce back from these kinds of disasters. >> let's bring in john nichols washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine and author of the book "uprising." the american middle class in this election cycle has been at the focal point of many conversations. this is the economic portion of america that's been asked to do more. this is the portion of america that has had their voices in the workplace attacked. their pensions cut. their wages sliced and yet we see when there is an emergency as what we are seeing with this storm, they step up and they are americans. what does it say about this country in the middle of this hot political debate that performances such as this are delivered by these americans? >> well, it's pretty inspiring, ed, and you're right, in many ways this year's election is a referendum on not just government. that's too vague a term. it's on the human infrastructure of public services in this country, the people who go out and make sure that when you go to sleep at night, and a storm is coming in, that that next morning you'll s
. good morning, i'm john berman. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. we have a field of reporters covering the aftermath of sandy from every angle. rob marciano in new york city. dan lothian and paul steinhouser standing by in washington, d.c. and richard quest is also out there for us. >> with 1/3 of the people in new york city, 2 million people here without power. transportation is at a virtual standstill at a few time where few people have cars, not to mention the property and destux. 80 homes were consumed by fire in keeps. recovery from super storm sandy will be a mammoth job. rob marciano is in the chelsea neighborhood here in new york city. he is joining us live. rob, i was there live yesterday. what was amazing was the exodus of people coming out where it is black right now. many people moving uptown to find power, food and information. >> reporter: yeah, it is stunning. when you go from the typical lit northern manhattan area and come south of 30th street, it just goes completely dark. it is something i have never seen in new york city. the people, the differences in how people re

with. and, the election coming up next week. john, jenna. jenna: a lot to keep an eye on, janice. thank you. jon: there is this. brand new troubles for a storm-ravaged storm town in new jersey. new fires erupt in the same area where more than a dozen homes burned down when sandy pounded this affluent town. natural gas lines apparently fueling the flames. fire crews are having a tough time reaching the scene because the roads are nearly impasseable. jenna: we're getting brand new details as well on the massive fire that tore through breezy point, queens. you saw some of the footage already. it just boggles the mind. ravaging the blocks and blocks of homes on the barrier island this. is what is evident are. the six alarm fire, one. worst in new york city's history. burned more than 100 homes to the ground and damaged dozens of others. fire crews working nine plus hours to contain fast-moving flames. the tiny coastal neighborhood told to evacuate before sandy on fear of flooding. one report, not a single building, not a single building in the area was left unscathed, hit by storm surge the
is live with the efforts by pg & e to restore power to businesses and homes. we begin with john fowler. >> reporter: the death toll has jumped to at least 48. 6million people without power and many more problems still ahead. water is the problem. these pictures just in from new jersey. crews this afternoon still searching for survivors. early this morning three towns submerged. >> we lost everything right now. never thought it would happen like this though. >> reporter: the wind driven atlantic crashed through coastal communities, damage may top $20 billion. mile upon mile of beach front destroyed. including the famed atlantic city boardwalk. and asbury boardwalk turned to jumbled timbers. in queens new york as many as 100 homes destroyed including a correct congressman's by an explosive overnight fire -- including a congressmans by an explosive overnight fire. 260 patients including newborns were evacuated by one hospital when generators failed. thousands of uprooted trees, smashed roofs and crushed cars. >> this is not over i'm sure we have more weather to deal with. hopefully peopl
. >> thank you. (applause) >>> thank you very much. and as john said, i do believe that mental health is more than just the individual, it's about creating community. and i feel very honored and very proud of the board of supervisors that you are acknowledging the importance of mental health in this city. i've worked for the city 23 years in mental health and i often come every budget year, you know, as john says to kind of fight or advocate for the needs of the community. and i live in the community and i work in the community, and i feel that a lot of times when the most stressed people in the city are suffering different traumas and the violence and the different pressures of immigration and other things, that they isolate in that moment and that when we can bring them back to community activities or partner with other agencies and schools and work all together, that's when we create more of a family and healing. so, thank you for acknowledging me and the need for mental health in our sector. so, thank you. (applause) >> thank you, supervisor. our next honoree will be acknowledged by super
of popos because signage requirements have been extremely inadequate. i want to thank spur, john king of the san francisco chronicle as well as the planning department for their strong advocacy to ensure this legislation would help move forward better signage requirements and i also want to thank supervisor wiener for his attention to this topic as well. we have a brief presentation from the planning department and i'd like to invite planning staff to make that presentation. >> good afternoon, chair mar and supervisors, kemia hadadar from the planning department. i'm going to go over the issues we found out through (inaudible) also our own trips to these spaces. there were multiple issues this legislation is trying to address. one is the size of these plaques. currently the code doesn't regulate the size so that made these signs to be in different sizes so, like, for example in this one we have a small like 6 by 10 inches sign plaque here, it's 55 second street. on 55 mission we have a slightly bigger one with lots of text in there, small font, and then empire park is a large sign
protocol to clear the building. and i was surprised that vicki henisi, the acting sheriff had called john st. croix and told him on his personal cell phone according to his statement made to kcbs in this room that she called over because there was some threat on the mayor's life. so, now, it was turns out that it is a bomb threat. and i would like to think that the mayor cares about the citizens of this city and county. and i would like to think that if there is a bomb threat in the city hall that the whole building is evacuated. >> i was upset in the minutes that we could say easily on the 29th. mr. hur that you recessed the meeting and adjourned it at the end. but i personally witnessed it in the meeting as soon as the bomb threat came in this meeting was adjourned i saw him do that with my own eyes, next there to mr. st. croix and to here it adjourned and reconvenes and this is unusual and none of it is in the minutes. so the actual record of what actually happened in this room is not accurate. and i object to that. and when i said that this was done inclusion with the mayor and steve
world series was john mcgraw in 1921, but don't let bochy fool you with his seemingly easy going nature. the wheels are always turning with him and we can say there is no finer manager in the game today. [cheers and applause] i want to acknowledge the foundation of the giants organization, our ownership group, 32 strong lead by charles johnson. they stepped up to serve as a stalt walt of this franchise and saved it in 1976 and then brought it to san francisco in the first place in 1958. i am proud each owner during the 55 years in san francisco is represented here today. as a fourth generation san franciscan growing up in the richmond district my heroes did wear orange and black. i watched them with my dad and mays and the other players. they're all here today. i knew their story as well as i knew my own because their stories were mine. they were part of my heritage. my parents passed it down to him just as brandon crawford's parents passed it to him and you're passing it your children and pam and i are passing it our children. all my heroes still wear orange and black. there
neighbors to the north in new york and new jersey. if your lights never went out, our good friend john from chantilly said give credit to the storm from over the summer. the reasoning is the der etcho in june took down the weaker trees and some of the infrastructure was replaced. that left more infrastructure for sandy to damage and the bright lining for a devastating storm. make some sense, john. there have to be a finite number of weak trees at one time and that herd has been thinned around here. and walton from virginia who said he is 91, had this to say. i believe god has spoken. god has given d.c. a washing. it is time to clean up washington. we survived sandy but never lost power. suspect the hurricane was not natural but hot air from all of those political candidates running for office. well, craig, that would explain some things and it would comfort us with the idea that maybe we won't see anything like this again for another 4 years. and finally, a hearty note of thanks from bruce in crownsville, maryland. i found that i tuned straight to channel 9 to learn first- hand about the st

to john in new mexico. on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. it is a great honor to be on the c-span. i studied this report in geology actually last year at unm, and wrote a report on this report. they use words like unequivocally, climate change is real, they use words like absolutely the climate has been changed. 95% degree of certainty the climate has been changed. now, i drive a ford. and i like driving, like the freedom of driving. i do not want to be a hypocrite. because climate change is real. and you can ignore climate change, it will not go away. claiming it is an act of god will not change it. the top scientists have agreed that the ocean level is rising from melting ice around the world. climate change is real. host: here is the washington times editorial. regulationsomobiles will claim hundreds of lives by making vehicles less safe. the environmental protection agencies were on call shut down to water plants that produce af- caller: i do not know there is enough money to throw at the problems. it is very depressing to me. because i really think that there is going to
when john mccain was the rom knee even with palin as part of the ticket that is unambiguously true, it is surely the case the republicans are more enthused with mitt romney and against the president than they have been all year, still a lot of enthusiasm for president and it is common if you go out to any of the president's events and you have seen events four years ago it is effortless to say this isn't like it was four years ago. but power years ago was off the charts. >> rose: yes. >> there is still a lot of enthusiasm for the president. if you look at the economy, the president shouldn't be in this race, and a big part of the reason he is in the race is governor romney had some question fish, deficiencies but a big reason he is in the race is tens of millions of americans love this president, think he a has done a great job and are determined to see him reelected. >> rose: rather than those who have the different tact, they expected more, unhappy about the results, but i am not yet convinced they want to not vote for him because they are unsure about the other people person? >>

abroad, he is weak at home. it's john major all over again. >> his position is completely incredible. he says he wants a cut in the e.u. budget, but he doesn't sanction a veto. we've made clear we will use the veto as i've used it before, so let me ask him, will you use the vie toe -- veto. >> order. order. i won't be using the veto, and i will ask the prime minister, about the tenth time i've asked him to respect parliamentary procedure in this matter. >> thank you, mr. speaker. the -- [inaudible] region faces many challenge, particularly with the announcement of job losses at ford last week. will my right honorable friend agree with me that the case for a city deal for south hampton and portsmouth is particularly compelling? >> i do think it is particularly compelling that we make sure south hampton has a city deal. i understand they are on the list. obviously, the news from ford was very disappointing. it was black spot in otherwise a very, very strong performance by the british automotive industry, and i know the business secretary will be working very closely with the city council t
